School engages community in long term planning process By Kate Bassett Harbor Light Newspaper

By Jessica Evans

Be extraordinary. The words used to define the mission and vision of the Harbor Springs School District are both simple and complex beyond measure. That’s why superintendent Mark Tompkins said when it was time to start working on a new strategic plan for the school system, a traditional approach just wouldn’t work. He said being extraordinary starts with extraordinary planning. That’s why the district opted to create a committee representative of all facets of the community, and had them engage in a “structured dialogic design” process. “It was a fantastic experience,” Tompkins said of the three full days of discussion, led by facilitator Jeffery Diedrich. “It was an incredible community dialogue. The whole thing was so positive, so inclusive.” The group met each session from 8 a.m.-5 p.m., using a “hyper-democratic” model with trigger questions such as, ““What actions must Harbor Springs Public School take to overcome barriers and approximate the ideal future of delivering extraordinary educational experiences that lead to successful student outcomes (including post-school) for all students?” Tompkins said each participant shared ideas and opinions, and from there, the process melted together similar thoughts and narrowed the focus on an “influence map” that helped define what ideas/changes would offer the most impact. Each session ended with its own influence map. “Two of our main focuses will be improving communication between parents, teachers, students, and the community, and creating a task for to look at extraordinary educational delivery systems,” Tompkins said. “Everyone came away with a different experience,” Tompkins said of the planning process, “But I think we all felt very good about where we are going.” All of the information gathered during the sessions will now return to the district’s steering committee, which is made up of administrators, teachers, and community members. The steering committee will take the influence maps which were created through the process and design a plan of action to present to the Board of Education. “Many school districts have thick documents filled with goals they are continued on page

A portrait of our farm-food system: A new research project will explore and evaluate Emmet County’s local food system By Jessica Evans Harbor Light Newspaper

Farming has changed drastically over the last half a century, in particular with family farms dwindling in number over the past few decades. Recently, however, there seems to be a renewed interest in local food and supporting those who grow it. In the next several months, a comprehensive look will be given to the Emmet County food-farm system due to a new research project spearheaded by North Central Michigan College and funded in part by the Petoskey Harbor Springs Area Community Foundation. The project, ti“We want to look at where our tled “A Portrait of Local Farmfood is coming from, how it’s Our Food System Todistributed and how the system day,” will seek to collect statistical can be improved upon.” data and also ac-Helen Leithauser cess local farms NCMC Corporate and Community Education and farmers in business training coordinator. the area to gain a collective overview of the local food system. “Our baseline goal is to look at the whole food system in Emmet County and to include information not only from farmers, but also from restaurants, businesses and individual consumers,” said Helen Leithauser, NCMC Corporate and Community Education business training coordinator. “We want to look at where our food is coming from, how it’s distributed and how the system can be improved upon.” The research will be conducted by student interns and volunteers to investigate farmland use, products, market structures, strengths, needs and recommendations for the local farming community. According to Leithauser, the hope is that this project will clearly identify the needs of local farmers and to eventually use the information gathered to develop new resources, markets and opportunities for farmers and to bolster the local food-farm economy. “This research project will help to generate ideas as to the market we need to create,” Leithauser said. “In a way, it’s sort of like a watershed; we’re looking at where the food is coming from, where it’s going and who is consuming it.”

The study will look at several different factors involved in farming and the local foods movement and will hopefully identify what local farmers need to succeed.

Forest fires help keep forests healthy, but can wreak havoc on homes nearby. The Huron National Forest, where a major fire in April 2012 burned 1,400 acres, is an example of a complex environment where social and ecological scientists are working with fire managers to address wildland fire issues and Sue Stewart. identify alternatives to protect the neighborhood. Sue Stewart, Ph.D., spent 20 years with the U.S. Forest Service and will talk about her research in this area at North Central Michigan College on Friday, January 25, at 12 p.m., during the Luncheon Lecture series. Stewart, daughter of Dave and Ann Irish, grew up in Harbor Springs and recently returned to her home town. During her time with the Forest Service, Stewart investigated housing growth and the challenges it creates for keeping forests healthy and sustainable. This research led to a request for national maps of areas where housing and forests overlap, because national fire policy focuses on reducing fire risk in such neighborhoods. Stewart noted that only some areas in northern Michigan are susceptible to wildland fires. These areas typically have sandy soil and pine trees, especially Jack Pines. Friday’s presentation will explore the current Federal policy of working with homeowners, making them aware of fire issues and enlisting their help to avoid the destruction of homes. “We’ll be looking at the Smokey Bear era of the Forest Service with its emphasis on preventing and suppressing fires and then discussing what we do now to work with homeowners,” Stewart said. “I’ll discuss what fire managers are doing to turn the problem with wildland fires around and what this means for northern Michigan,” Stewart said. Geographic information system (GIS) mapping is a major component of the research Stewart uses, and said she encourages students interested in this to attend the presentation for more information

The funding for the project is made possible due to a $6,200 grant provided by the Petoskey Harbor Springs Area Community Foundation. An estimated $7,000 will be contributed to the project by North Central Michigan College, the Local Food Alliance of Northern Michigan, and various other donors. The Local Food Alliance was created in order to raise consciousness about farms and food. “The interest and support of the Community Foundation in regard to the local food movement has been phenomenal,” Leithauser said. According to Petoskey Harbor Springs Community Foundation program officer Sara Ward, the project aims to gain a fuller understanding of what assets and gaps there are in the current local food system.

Lakeful Moment


Harbor Springs Chamber director offers ‘State of the Community Report’ By Daniel DeWindt Harbor Springs Chamber of Commerce Executive Director

Ever since we published Molly Ames Baker’s essay in our December 12 issue (still available to read online, www. harborlightnews. com), “Lakeful” has been a major buzzword with readers near and far. We’re inviting folks to send us images, memories, and ideas about ways to be more lakeful in our daily lives, and we’ll be compiling them for a new website. -Kate Bassett, Editor

The 2012 Chamber year in Harbor Springs was an exciting one filled with some outstanding advancement in Chamber organization, growth and stability. Yet, we look at the year of 2012 as a stepping stone to the future strength of the Chamber in the upcoming years. In order to work toward strengthening ourselves for the future, we have experienced (and had expected to experience) some challenges financially. We now feel the Chamber is stronger today than it was a year ago. The bulk of our operating funds come from the multiple events that the Chamber hosts throughout the year. These events serve a dual purpose of fundraising for the Chamber and as a draw for many visitors to experience the Harbor Springs area. Our events, the financial stronghold of our Chamber, did experience some setbacks

Pictured: Another great “lakeful” moment, this one coming from reader Anne Butler Muckerman. Anne sent us this photo of two friends from college, Ann and Helen Focke-red-headed twins from Dayton, Ohio-- who were visiting Anne’s family at their Harbor Point cottage. The photo was taken at Cottage 33’s dock during the summer of 1948. The girls are in Anne’s family’s Chris Craft.

Poetry American Life in Poetry BY TED KOOSER, U.S. POET LAUREATE

this year. However, we have kept our operating expenses in line and actually came in under budget. Furthermore, we have identified where our weak points were in 2012 and have set up a plan to strengthen our events in regard to donation/sponsorships, attendance and stronger expense control. We are proud to say that our Chamber was strong enough financially to take on the challenges of 2012. In terms of membership, we maintained positive growth for the third year in a row. Membership dues were up 7.4-percent over 2011, without having raised the membership fees. We look forward to 2013 being another year of growth. We’ll kick off a membership drive in the spring to coincide with the release of the new membership directory. Plus, we’ve added a new level of membership to afford start ups and entrepreneurs to take advantage of the services and marketing offered through the chamber. Interested individuals should contact the chamber to learn more. At the recent Annual Meeting for members, incoming board president Tom Trautman said he “looks forward to the challenges of the coming year. A lot of positive things are happening in this community and again, I’m glad to be part of it. We all need to continue to shape this community to which residents, visitors and investors are attracted.” Tom went on further to say “we need to promote the community and strive to ensure future prosperity via a pro-business climate. As a chamber we need to represent the unified voice of the employer community and reduce transactional friction through well-functioning networks. Harbor Springs is a great place to live and work, but there is always room for improvement and together we can make it better.” -CONTINUED on page 3.

Week of January 23-29, 2013

The fundraising efforts are underway for the dollar-fordollar matching program in an effort to raise the $25,000. Our Marketing and PR committee continues to pursue greater publicity for our town, its merchants and community events. Media relations and press outreach in 2012 was excellent– the media coverage gained through the support efforts of our PR firm has resulted in the advertising equivalency of $350,000 plus (Nearly 3,000,000 impressions). To round out our marketing objectives, launching of the Stafford’s Marketing Challenge was announced recently at the HSACC Annual Meeting - The Chamber has set the goal to raise $35,000 specifically for local marketing efforts, separate from Pure Michigan. Stafford’s Hospitality believes so strongly in this campaign that they have once again proudly contributed the first $1,000 to launch this fund-raising campaign. Plus, Stafford’s Hospitality supports this effort so much that they have pledged to match 15-percent of any dollars raised (up to $5,000) by January 31, 2013! Stafford’s will then offer a 10-percent matching fund for every additional dollar pledged after January 31 and before April 1, 2013 (Minimum commitment $1,000, maximum of $5,000). We’re grateful for their support and with their backing the Chamber is con-

fident in raising the funds necessary to maintain and grow our marketing efforts in an increasingly competitive market place. Lastly, movement to establish the Harbor Springs Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation is underway. The foundation will function as a charitable organization and be instrumental in helping manage donations associated with the Fourth of July Fireworks and other fundraising campaigns. In closing 2012 has been filled with new opportunity and positive change. We have seen growth in membership, strengthened communications and a renewed connection with members and the community. I, along with my staff, board of directors and volunteers are all whole heartedly committed to the growth of the town and genuinely care about the community. The Chamber strives, and is looking for new ways, to add value for its members that they’ve come to expect. On behalf of the Board of Directors and the Staff of the Harbor Springs Area Chamber of Commerce, thank you everyone for your support and participation throughout 2012, and we look forward to serving this extraordinary community for generations to come. daniel@harborspringschamber. com 231-526-7999

McLaren Northern Michigan Hosts Cancer Survivorship and Wellness Series McLaren Northern Michigan is hosting a free four-week program to help cancer survivors face the challenges and changes cancer brings; from the moment of diagnosis, through treatment and beyond, and into years of survivorship or palliative care. “Cancer Survivorship and Wellness,” a program funded by McLaren Northern Michigan Foundation, offers education and support to cancer patients and their family members. The group sessions take place from 2 - 4 p.m. on February 7, 14, 21 & 28 at the John and Marnie Demmer Wellness Pavilion and Dialysis Center, 820 Arlington Avenue in Petoskey. Sessions will focus on living well with a cancer diagnosis, as well as learning skills for the promotion of physical and emotional well-being. Attendance at all four sessions is highly recommended. Family members or caregivers are also welcome to attend. “This group is designed to allow people who are living through any cancer diagnosis, be it an early diagnosis or living beyond their treatments, to come together and speak about their journeys,”

Paxton retires from Health Department after 40-year career in health care

said Rita E. Miller, RN, MSN, OCN, and Nurse Clinician at McLaren Northern Michigan in Petoskey. Miller said the end of cancer treatments are not the end of the cancer experience for patients who must face complicated care issues related to their cancer survivorship. “Cancer patients continue to live with chronic disease issues long after their initial cancer treatment and followup care has ended with their oncology team,” she said. “A cancer diagnosis no longer signals a diagnosis of death. Today, people are living longer with a cancer diagnosis, and with increased health care needs related to their individual cancer type or from the side effects of cancer treatments received during acute care.” “This group provides a way for survivors to come together and collectively learn about cancer and to discover ways to live ‘well’ as a survivor with a cancer diagnosis,” she added. For more information, call Amy Juneau at 231.487.4015 or Rita Miller at 231.487.4281. Space is limited. Register by calling 800.248.6777.

The H1N1 flu outbreak of 2009 was a defining moment in the history of the Health Department of Northwest Michigan. As the illness quickly became an epidemic, the agency responded just as quickly by realigning its operations to administer 22,000 doses of flu vaccine to Northern Michigan residents, and to coordinate the distribution of another 8,000 doses through other providers. It was also a signature moment in the career of Carol Paxton who, as the Health Department’s Director of Emergency Preparedness, was instrumental in preparing the Department and the community to respond to the epidemic. Paxton is retiring this month after 30 years with the Health Department, and 40 years in health care. “Carol has a unique ability to organize and plan initiatives,” said Linda Yaroch, Health Officer. “She took on Emergency Preparedness in 2002, and became its Director in 2006 as demands increased. She led the agency and the community in mass immunization exercises, which prepared us for the reality of the H1N1 epidemic in 2009.”

-Submitted by McLaren Northern Michigan

Yaroch added that Paxton’s efforts, including the numerous plans she authored, have laid the groundwork for future emergency preparedness. Paxton received her nursing degree from MSU in 1969, and went on to complete a Master’s degree at Wayne State’s nursing program in 1972. After several years as a maternal and child health nurse consultant for the Michigan Department of Community Health, and later as a college instructor and lecturer, she landed at the Health Department – known then as District Health Department No. 3 – as its Director of Personal Health Services. Through the years, she also served as the Director of Health Promotion, overseeing adolescent and reproductive health programs, breast and cervical cancer screening, worksite wellness and the development of numerous coalitions to promote healthy lifestyles and reduce chronic disease. “Carol’s easy going, friendly personality resonates with everyone who’s had the privilege of working with her,” said Yaroch. “Her colleagues have become her friends, and she’s forever a part of our family.” Emergency preparedness responsibilities will now reside within the Health Department’s Environmental Health Division; Matthew Blythe, an emergency management professional who joined the agency this month, will take on the role of Emergency Preparedness Coordinator.

As proof that you are never too old to learn, I’d like to offer the following. I’ve lived in Harbor Springs all my life but I never knew nor questioned who the namesake for Zorn Park was. This week in church, I learned that it was named after one of the first priests from Holy Childhood. It’s good to have it reinforced periodically that you are never too old to learn. For the most part, I appreciate my education at the Harbor Springs schools,

but one thing that I feel was lacking was any local history. We studied Michigan history courtesy of Joe Flynn, but other than the stories of the massacre in Mackinaw and a few tales of Father Marquette, there really was no emphasis on this area and that is a shame. I was rather a nerd who has always enjoyed studying history and a class of that nature would have really appealed to me. I hope we all appreciate Mary Cummings

and the staff at the Historical Society and some area residents like Tom Graham and Ed Meyer for helping to preserve for us the wonderful stories of time gone by; I know I do. I did not know until a couple of years ago, for example, that Cross Village used to be a flourishing metropolis in comparison with some of the other towns around or that it is considered by many to be the oldest settlement

Obituaries Jessie Casey Jessie Milne Casey 87, daughter of Charles and Elizabeth (Moore) Milne, was born June 28, 1925 and died January, 22, 2013 at Bay Bluffs in Harbor Springs, where she made her home the last five years with the love and support of staff and friends. She graduated from Saginaw High School in 1943 and from Central Michigan College the spring of 1947. That fall, October 3rd of 1947, she married Glenn Casey in Saginaw, Michigan. The couple moved to East Lansing Jessie Milne Casey where Jess taught first grade while Glenn attended Michigan State University. In 1950, they moved with their oldest daughter to Petoskey, where three more daughters joined the family over the next ten years. Active in the girls’ schools, Jess also taught first grade at Central Elementary and later worked as a reading specialist teacher’s aide in the Petoskey school system. A long-time member of the Petoskey Garden Club, Presbyterian Church, and the Petoskey Library Board, she was also a strong supporter, along with her husband Glenn, of youth sports activities. Jess is survived by four daughters and their families: Deb Casey (John Witte), Marty (Jim) Juilleret, Nan (Jim) Dunn, Barb (Cam) Howard, and their children: Josie and Anna Casey Witte; Jason (Kristin) Juilleret, Kate (Andy) Kloss, Sara Juilleret Moore(Eric); Casey, Daniel and Joey Dunn; Cameron and Abigail Howard; plus four step-grandchildren: Jamie Dunn, Shawna Esther, Steffen and Brandon Howard; and seven greatgrandchildren: Alexis, Lily, Jane, & Landon Juilleret; Wyatt and Weston Kloss; and Lorelei Moore—who all brought great joy into her life. She was preceded in death by six siblings, as well as her husband Glenn in 1991. Funeral services will be held at the Schiller Funeral Home in Harbor Springs on Friday Jan. 25th at 11:00 AM.

of continuous occupancy in the state. We all know the term L’Arbre Croche but does any one know where the crooked tree was located? I’ve heard it was on a bluff near Good Hart, but never the specific location. If any of you know the answer, I would love to hear it. From the purchase of Harbor Point from Father Weikamp, the development of Wequetonsing (originally called Wa-ba-bi-kang) following the donation of the land from the citizens of Harbor Springs, right up through the stories of gangsters during prohibition, this area is rife with fascinating tales. Without the photos of Virgil Haynes, many of us would never have known about the huge cruise ships that used to dock in our harbor. I doubt that many children today would believe what a transportation center Harbor Springs used to be, with the big ships coming in the bay and the passenger trains coming into town, bringing tourists to enjoy the beautiful resort hotels that used to populate the area. Imagine being able to take a train not just south to Detroit, Grand Rapids and Chicago but to areas all around the North; there are times in mid-August when I think this would be the greatest idea going. Harbor Springs housed the

county offices for quite some time in the mid-1800’s, when Emmet County was much larger than it is now, encompassing part of Cheboygan and Charlevoix Counties. It wasn’t until 1902 that Petoskey was officially named the county seat. Turn of the century population in Harbor Springs was already around 1000. The logging industry was huge to the development of this area, my father and grandfather both worked as loggers, yet I know little about it. I grew up about five miles north of town and we used to follow the old logging train routes to look for mushrooms; I doubt that many people realize how many of those trails snake through the local woods. Between the logging and several mills located in the area, logging was a major part of the history of Harbor Springs and of this section of the state, providing much needed employment. Other than the contest that named a school after him, I don’t remember ever hearing Ephraim Shay’s name growing up. We now celebrate Shay Days, but how many people, especially students, have any idea who we are celebrating and what he accomplished? Robert Emmet is a fascinating man, a true patriot in Irish history, yet his story was never shared with us. Self proclaimed King James -CONTINUED on page 7.

already working on or know they will be completing soon. It doesn’t do anything in terms of pushing toward being extraordinary, which is why the steering committee will come up with a much smaller, but more detailed plan, Tompkins said. “Going in, we thought the process would be finished when the last session ended, but we have a lot more work to do. We need to be able to answer the who, what, when,

and how. We’ll need costs, evaluation components and action plans.” Tompkins stressed the district has made a commitment to create a comprehensive plan, and expects the steering committee to be ready to present it to Board of Education members in April. The board will then have one month to think about the plan (and collect community input), before voting on it in May.

Scoring (boys): The 7th and 8th grade boys team took second place. Sam Bailey finished fifth for the boys with a combined time of 45.26. Max Sydow took tenth place with a time of 47.19. Jimmie DeCamp reeled in eleventh place with a time of 47.25 while Thomas Kelbel rounded out the top four with a fifteenth place finish and a combined time of 49.77.

Thursday , January 17 home vs Charlevoix Harbor Springs 40, Charlevoix 24 Scoring: Claire Fleming 10, Libby Sylvain nine, Mikayla Dickinson eight, Zoey Bezilla five, Alexa Jensen-Philbrick and Sophie Seitz three, Perry Bower two. Rebounds: Libby nine, Mikayla six, Claire four, Sophie and Abby Zmikly three, Zoey, Alexa, Perry and Karli Schwark two. Steals: Perry six, Zoey four, Mikayla three, Libby, Sophie, Alexa and Claire two. Coach’s comments: Head coach Tom Brogger said: “ In the last six days since our last game, we’ve had a number of girls fighting cold and flu-like symptoms. Practices have been challenging with low numbers but I think in somewhat of a rivalry game like this we were able to fight through some of the lack of preparation. After a bit of a slow start, our full court pressure seemed to kick in as we took control of the game in the middle two quarters. Libby, Mikayla and Claire, three of our “bigs” all played very well executing set plays and picking up second chance points. Zoey was strong defensively and knocked down a three. Sophie was solid at point guard. Perry, Alexa and Abby were good in all phases while perhaps our sickest two, Karli and Reagan Damoose contributed more than we could have expected.” Next game Thursday, January 24 at Elk Rapids, 6:00 p.m.

Girls 9th Grade Basketball Thursday, January 17 at Charlevoix Charlevoix 33, Harbor Springs 23 Scoring: Harmony Lang led the scoring with 11 points, Ashley Burdick four, Jodi-Ann Smith four, Jessica Worm, two, Kaylie Hurd two. Coach’s comments: Coach Katie Wilson said: “This was a tough game right from the start. We were not the same team they played previously. It was frustrating on us all. We had a hard time defending them in the half court. Harmony Lang led us in rebounds with 7 on the night. She is a good leader on the court for our team. Jessica Worm had quick hands and gave it everything she had. She was all over the place and shut down their point guard during the duration of the game. For a first timer, she really understands the game. It is awesome to watch her play. Offensively, it was not our night.” Next game Thursday , February 14 at home vs. Charlevoix at 4:30 p.m.

In last week’s Harbor Light issue, a ski photo taken at the Lake Michigan Conference meet of Sadie Cwikiel was mistakenly labeled as Morgan Rankin.

Area organizations host winter events Andreae-Banwell Ski and Snowshoe Event: Saturday, January 26 10 a.m.-3 p.m.

Through-hike/-ski/-snowshoe the trails of the Andreae and Banwell Preserves with a destination in mind: the Andreae Cabin on the Pigeon River. Park at the Banwell Preserve on Andreae Preserve and head to the Andreae Cabin, exploring the trails at your leisure. At the cabin, hot cider, hot cocoa, snacks, and a warm fire will be waiting inside. Volunteer naturalist Mike Supernault will be leading 30 minute interpretive hikes at 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. leaving from the Andreae Cabin. This is one of our most extensive trail systems and the ski/snowshoe trek can be anywhere from four to six miles out and back, depending on the route. For more information call 231-347-0991. Getting Kids Outdoors Workshop: Ice Fishing 101 Saturday, January 26 Noon-2 p.m. Little Traverse Township Boat Launch Come learn the basics of ice fishing along with information on the health of the Cheboygan River Watershed, and watch a demonstration on how the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indian’s Natural Resources Department conducts water quality testing on the inland lakes. Meet at the Little Traverse Township Boat Launch on US-31, 5 miles east of Petoskey. Dress Warmly. Wear many layers and boots. All equiptment and bait is provided. The program is free and no registration is required. For more information on Getting Kids Outdoors, go to or email or call 231-838-4913. Snowshoe the Black Hole Preserve Saturday, January 26 1-4 p.m. The Crooked-Pickerel Channel and Black Hole is a well-known destination for boaters on the inland waterway (in fact, this area has been the site of PRAS paddling outings in the past). But, until now it has been inaccessible to the public from the land side. This past Fall, the Little Traverse Conservancy acquired a 113-acre parcel adjacent to the Black Hole Nature Preserve. This acquisition means that the entire nearly milelong north and east shoreline of the Crooked-Pickerel Channel and the Black Hole (a small deep lake located midway along the Channel) is now protected. This area provides great wildlife habitat year-round. But the fact that it the Channel rarely freezes (due to relatively warm discharge from Pickerel Lake) makes it especially attractive for waterfowl and other waterdependant birds and mammals in the winter. Join outdoorsman extraordinaire, PRAS member and LTC staff member Doug Fuller for an exploration of the new, expanded Black Hole Preserve by snowshoe. The group will meet at the north end of the public parking lot adjacent to the Hillside Garden in Alanson (along US31, near the intersection with M68) and caravan to the site. Contact Doug at doug@ or 344-1009 for more information.

IceFest set to take place in Munising February 1-3 By Jessica Evans Harbor Light Newspaper

For those who are up for an outdoor winter adventure, look no further than Munising’s Ice Fest in the Upper Peninsula, about three hours northwest of Harbor Springs, set to take place February 1-3. Munising, home of the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, boasts some 17 waterfalls in the area, and several more during the winter months when water run-off and winter melting create additional ice formations,

which is an ideal setting for ice climbers. The festival, which has been taking place since the late 1980s, is the third largest event of its kind in the country and offers various demos and courses to everyone from first timers to experienced climbers. “The big difference between our Ice Fest and others ice festivals is that people with little to no experience can come up here and learn to ice climb for a relatively low cost,” said Ice Fest organizer Bill Thompson. “We provide

all the equipment you’d need to get started and even some of the necessary clothing.” Visitors have the opportunity to learn from some of the best ice climbers in the world. Courses are taught by well-known climbers that offer detailed instruction to those who are interested. “It’s like going to basketball camp and having Michael Johnson and Larry Bird there as your instructors,” Thompson said. “This year, we have some of the strongest athletes in the climbing world attending Ice Fest. Overall, it’s a great

line up.” In addition to teaching demos during the day, festivities continue at night with slideshows presented by several of these world renowned ice climbers. “There is a lot of good energy throughout the weekend and everyone has a lot of fun,” Thompson said. “Plus, it’s the perfect way to get some ice climbing experience for people who’ve never done it before.” For more information on Ice Fest, go to / or call 906226-7112.

Supporting small farmers, like those at the farmers market, helps to foster the local economy by providing jobs.

Harbor Light photo by Charles O’Neill

Study of local food-farm system to take place continued from page 1

noted by doing this, the community as a whole will benefit. “Local food production, processing, and distributing can create a significant number of stable jobs,” Ward said. “Community-based food systems capitalize on opportunities for entrepreneurial farmers and small businesses to add value to local agricultural products and keep a larger portion of each food dollar within the local economy.” The Community Foundation’s interest in promoting lo-

cal foods was strengthened in 2006, when the organization added “land use” as a priority issue to address in Emmet County. With this came the decision to focus on local agriculture and to increase support for local food and farms. “Again and again we saw and heard that area farms were under pressure and that unless farming can provide a living for families who want to farm, we would continue to lose our communities agricultural assets,” she said. “We saw an opportunity for

the Community Foundation to play a leading role in increasing the viability of local agriculture in order to preserve our rural landscape and culture. Plus, as with all things local, food is about relationships and can build community.” Farmers, food distributors, consumers, and restaurateurs who are interested in participating in the project are encouraged to call (231) 348-6705.

ABOUT TOWN Winter Outings

30th Annual Cross Country Ski Loppett, will be hosted

At the Movies with Cynthia Morse Zumbaugh

Mama I’m not a big fan of horror movies, or at least what have passed for horror movies in recent years. Slash and gore do not, in my opinion, take the place of suspense nor surpass my imagination. Where is Hitchcock when we need him? Happily, Mama has suspense aplenty and it successfully gave me the heebie jeebies; it’s one of the best movies of this genre in quite some time. The problem with reviewing a horror movie is in deciding how much to say; if you give away the surprises, the movie loses everything, so I am going to be deliberately vague on this one. As the movie opens, we see a father (Nikolaj Coster Waldau) take his two daughters to a cabin deep in the woods, apparently for a sinister purpose. Five years later, the two young girls are found alive and in a feral state. They are filthy; they scurry like animals and eat the occasional bug. It is difficult to believe, how were they able to keep themselves alive for all that time? They are examined by a psychiatrist, who determines they should be able to lead normal lives (seriously?) and their very well meaning Uncle Jeffrey, also played by CosterWaldau, takes the girls into his home. There is much behavior that should have been considered cautionary and Jeffrey’s girlfriend Annabel (Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain) certainly has her concerns, but when Jeffrey suffers an accident, she steps up into the role of primary care giver. I’ve heard some complaints about excessive CGI usage; I didn’t find it to be excessive, I think the way some of the characters moved added so much to the film. There were many “gotcha” moments that had me out of my seat and my cuticles may be beyond salvaging; this is a scary movie. The two actresses who play the little girls are amazing; Megan Charpentier and Isabelle Nelisse deserve much of the credit for the success of this movie. Coster-Waldau is solid, but it is up to Chastain to carry the movie and she does so brilliantly. This movie is based on a short film, also written and directed by Andrés Muschietti and produced by Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth); you can find it on Youtube if you would like a simpler and shorter taste of this movie. Somehow Mama was given a PG13 rating; I’m not sure I wouldn’t have gone with an R. I do know that it’s not for younger children because of the scary/gore factor. There is a little profanity and one sexual situation, very mild, but I’ll probably be having nightmares myself.

Books of Note Me Before You Author: Jojo Moyes Louisa Clark is ordinary. She has an ordinary job at The Buttered Bun, she has an ordinary education, she has an ordinary boyfriend, and she has an ordinary family (or as much as any family can be ordinary). Frank, the owner of The Buttered Bun, informs Louisa that he is closing the store - effective immediately. Louisa is shoved out into the world of the unemployed and begins her job search. She lasts a day at the chicken processing factory and her prospects are not bright. Louisa’s father lives in fear that he will be laid off from the furniture factory. Louisa’s sister Treena lives at home with her son Thomas, leaving the smallest bedroom for Louisa. They are all depending on Louisa to get a job and help them all through this latest of financial disasters. Louisa answers an ad to care for a man who is paraplegic. She envisions an elderly man whose hand she can hold, a man she can read to, and a drooling man she can spoon feed. Lou, being a free-spirit in the fashion department, borrows a too tight suit belonging to her mother, and sets off for this latest job interview. She arrives at Granta House knowing she is completely out of her element. Granta House and the mistress, Camilla Traynor, are very high end indeed, but Louisa, with her positive attitude and ripped borrowed suit, gets the job...and the real story begins! A love story in the dark, cold days of winter is just the thing - this coming from me, the Queen of Darkness. The story will keep you riveted, turning those pages, wondering how it will turn out. The characters are believable and the family dynamics will have you laughing out loud. The antics of the neighbors, though secondary characters, are priceless. Treat yourself to an upbeat story that will warm you on these cold winter days. The English sense of humor is in full bloom on these pages! REVIEWED BY JUDY CUMMINGS

Cate Liska

I believe in definition of choice Editor’s Note: This essay, the third in our community This I Believe collection, was written by Harbor Springs High School junior Cate Liska. We encourage anyone connected to our community to submit an essay, as we are partner with the Harbor Springs Library to build a collection of voices, and beliefs, that define who we are, together. When I tell people that I suffer from panic disorder, their response is usually surprise. I understand it—the stoic, collected Cate Liska occasionally runs around in moments of anxious desperation? Yes, yes she does. She’s not proud of it, but she doesn’t try to keep it a secret, either. I was diagnosed with this condition a little more than a year ago. The eponymous symptoms of panic disorder, in my case, are random, intense bouts of panic brought on by stress, exhaustion, hunger, or, most often, nothing in particular. I won’t bore or scare you with the dark gritty details of my condition, but I will say this: over the past year, it having been characterized by many a public panic attack, I let it become my defining feature. In November 2011, my mental state began morphing into a fetal position. I was crippled and disabled by my anxiety. I lived in fear of having a panic attack. I was always aware: I

am Cate Liska, and I have panic attacks. As the summer of 2012 bloomed, the anxiety eased and I felt more human. I still had panic attacks, but they were not the terrifying spectacles I experienced through the winter. However, November again returned as did my anxiety. Soon I was having panic attacks every day. These episodes slowly compounded into what I know as constant “derealization”, an anxious side effect in which I have a chronic fear that nothing is real. This has prompted many a doctor visit and several medications. Derealization is terrifying and uncomfortable and constant. It comes in waves, and at the crest of those waves are the situations in which I run from the classroom, hide in my bed, or become frenetic with fear. As I enter my seventh week of unreality, I have begun to turn my tables of thought. Not only am I sick and tired of feeling like a psycho, but I realize I am stronger than my disease. When I let an hour go by without noticing the derealization or after a school day of zero panic attacks, I am sure: I am not my disease. I believe in definition of choice. I believe that I can be defined by my illness, or by the hours that go by in which my illness does not affect me. I choose the hours. May they continue to grow longer.

“This I Believe” is more than a powerful statement. It’s an international movement based on a 1950s radio program of the same name, hosted by acclaimed journalist Edward R. Murrow. In 2004, This I Believe was founded as an independent, notfor-profit organization that engages youth and adults from all walks of life in writing, sharing, and discussing brief essays about the core values that guide their daily lives. Now in 2013, This I Believe is coming to our community in the form of a partnership between the Harbor Light Newspaper and the Harbor Springs Library. Accepting submissions on a rolling basis, the up-to 500 word essays will be collected for a website, printed in this newspaper, and read at community gatherings hosted at the library. A continuous celebration of stories from all ages, this project will seek to give voice to a community, in its own words. To participate, simply put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) and finish the thought: “this I believe.” Here’s some additional guidelines, provided by This I Believe ( We understand how challenging this is—it requires such intimacy that no one else can do it for you. To guide you through this process, we offer these suggestions: Tell a story: Be specific. Take your belief out of the ether and ground it in the events of your life. Consider moments when belief was formed or tested or changed. Think of your own experience, work, and family, and tell of the things you know that no one else does. Your story need not be heart-warming or gut-wrenching—it can even be funny—but it should be real. Make sure your story ties to the essence of your daily life philosophy and the shaping of your beliefs.

Be brief: Your statement should be between 350 and 500 words. That’s about three minutes when read aloud at your natural pace. Name your belief: If you can’t name it in a sentence or two, your essay might not be about belief. Also, rather than writing a list, consider focusing on one core belief, because three minutes is a very short time. Be positive: Please avoid preaching or editorializing. Tell us what you do believe, not what you don’t believe. Avoid speaking in the editorial “we.” Make your essay about you; speak in the first person. Be personal: Write in words and phrases that are comfortable for you to speak. We recommend you read your essay aloud to yourself several times, and each time edit it and simplify it until you find the words, tone, and story that truly echo your belief and the way you speak. In a time when personal statements of belief-- as hard as they can be to describe-- are more important than ever, we’re humbled to offer a chance to be witness to the beliefs of our community. Gather the generations of a family together, task a book club, or simply commit to doing this for yourself-- just find a way to commit to contributing to this vital and wonderful community project, and when you do, email your essay to, or mail it to the Harbor Light Newspaper, 211 E. Third Street, Harbor Springs, MI. 49740.

Please add your personal statement of belief to the community This I Believe project. Email essays (see submission guidelines to the right) to or mail to the Harbor Light Newspaper, 211 E.
